spray painting fire extinguisher... What paint looks good???

I want to spray paint the small fire extinguisher I'm going to bolt in the passenger side of my car to match the color of my car (you know the same shine and the same color) which is the stock vibrant red color it came with when some old guy bought it new. But I don't know anything about paint so I just wanted to know where I could find this color paint and what type of paint to buy since there are a thousand different types of spray paint for everything now. And I know it's a dumb question to ask but I'm sure most of you are experienced people and I'm only 18 and definatly not crafty enough to be a handy man yet... Thanks everyone...

I had a friend whos car pretty much burst into flames due to some kinda short circut, so if he would have had a $10 dollar fire extinguisher he would have saved himself alot of money...

But the neon can burn...

Well most people suggest I put it within arms length and I guess that does make sense but I bought my paint and everything today I'll paint it later once I get that damn sticker thing off....

wouldn't c02 fire extinguishers cause more engine damage then just letting the fire run it's course?

I've heard you can crack a hot block by using freezsing C02.


and isn't it just for n02 backfires anyways?

Considering you want to paint it to match and stick it where everyone can see it, that's pretty rice.. you might want to consider getting blue hazard lights =P
